I know as I grow older And my eyes have clearer sight That behind the darkest shadow There’s a shining ray of light
That sorrow has a purpose Though we seldom guess As through this world, we rush so madly That all is for the best
Everyone has love and sorrow Everyone has grief and pain Everyone has sunshine and shadows Rich or poor it’s just the same
Where there is sunshine There are always shadows Where there is grief, there is always pain So, when you thank God for sunshine Kneel and thank him for the rain.
RF circa 1940’s
